Your Ski Hotel in Gastein
Our local mountain is the Schlossalm – the new cable car can be reached on foot or by ski bus.
The cable car serves as the entry point to the ski carousel Schlossalm-Angertal-Stubnerkogel. You can discover more slopes in Sportgastein and on Graukogel – here you can ski on pure natural snow. From Dorfgastein, you can go to the Großarltal via Fulseck. All lift facilities are part of Ski Amadé.

Our Ski Tip
Our ski area offers avid skiers like us a great deal of variety. What could be better than laying down the first tracks on the slopes early in the morning? Or perhaps “powdering” on one of the ski routes in fresh deep snow? The options here are nearly limitless. With the Hohe Scharte Nord downhill run, we boast one of the longest ski slopes in the Eastern Alps: Here, you can carve turns for more than 10 km.
One of our favorite runs is the Junger-Alm with its quite challenging slope into the Angertal. On the mountain huts, you can then enjoy culinary highlights with a wonderful view of the winter mountain landscape of the Gastein Valley. We especially like to stop at the newly-opened Hofgasteinerhaus at an altitude of 1950 meters. There’s something here for every skier, whether beginner or professional. Another particular challenge is the natural ski area Graukogel.
You won’t find snow cannons, but you will find very challenging slopes. By the way, our ski champion Toni Seiler won 3 gold and 1 silver medals here in the 1958 World Ski Championships. A visit to the Graukogel hut is worthwhile for a look into the “World Champion’s Room,” where you can admire interesting memorabilia.

Mitten im Herzen des Ortes empfängt Sie das Team von The STORKS. Seit geraumer Zeit beherbergt eines der ältesten Gebäude des Städtchens das moderne, stilvoll eingerichtete Skihotel in Bad Hofgastein.
Located right in the heart of the town, the team at The STORKS welcomes you.

The Art & Boutique Hotel The STORKS offers ideal conditions for a relaxed and entertaining stay.
How far is the ski hotel from the slope?
The cable car on the “local mountain” of The STORKS – the Schlossalm – is most easily reached on foot or by ski bus. This bus practically departs from the front door of the hotel and takes you to the Schlossalm slope in no time. The highest point of the famous ski area Schlossalm-Angertal-Stubnerkogel is the Hohe Scharte station, located 2,300 meters above sea level. This is where one of the longest descents in the Eastern Alps begins. Alternatively, you can drive to the slopes and park at the base of the cable car.
If you prefer not to store your skis at the slope but want to bring them back to the hotel: The STORKS offers plenty of space for your equipment in the heated ski cellar. Our tip: With a valid ski pass, you can reach the lifts throughout the entire ski area from The STORKS using the free ski bus for you. This includes the Graukogel and Dorfgastein-Großarl.
